Diner Reviews
  • "Overpriced for little, slightly better than average food. Waitstaff weak. No kids menu in an area that is full of families. We would not go back to restaurant."

  • "We celebrated our anniversary and even though last minute the presentation, preparation of food and warm welcome were the pinnacle of our day. Thank you for making it so memorable on such a wonderful occasion!"
    Dined on 5/24/2014
  • "Food is fresh and well prepared..... Presentations just OK. But it is still a local place, run by locals....can't hit the curve ball or think outside the box. If you stay between the lines the experience should be OK. "

  • "Union Bluff Grill was a wonderful dining experience. It was like walking into your a special home with fireplace burning, beautiful ocean view and perfect lighting. The presentation of the plates chosen were outstanding but the food was twice that in flavor. Service was excellent. A very nice evening. I would defintely recommend this restaurant and of course go there again."

  • "We were married at this hotel and came back for a holiday/anniversary dinner. The food was wonderful and the chef was great with a few special requests we had. We were there on the early side (around 5:30 pm), but even once it filled up, the service was very prompt. A great way to end a day in the cold, sitting next to the fireplace with a delicious meal."

  • "Don't make the mistake of going non-seafood here... while the steak is great, as is the pork... you MUST go with the Lobster Ravioli dish. I command you. P.S. The cookie and caramel puff desserts are remarkable, too!"
    Dined on 11/16/2013
  • "Our server was friendly and knowledgeable; the food and drink recommendations were awesome. I got the salmon which was cooked to perfection and the Ginger Martini was balanced: not too sweet or strong (alcohol-wise and ginger-wise). We were there for lunch the day before on the outdoor patio which looks out on Short Sands Beach, but the server wasn't as engaged; however, the food was still outstanding."

  • "Seared Haddock was one of the best dishes we ever had! 5 Stars. Sherry Cream Sauce with Lobster accompaniment was fabulous. Beautiful decor and view. Highly recommended by the Wealthy Waiter!"

  • "We love coming as frequently as possible. The atmosphere is warm and friendly; the staff is superb; and the food is memorable. Every effort is seen in the preparation and presentation of our meal and the result is a very satisfied and delighted customer. We take our dear family and friends at every opportunity we can."

  • "We met friends at the Union Grill and they had never dined there. We see them once a year so we were looking for a quieter setting with good food. It was perfect!!! It was a foggy and cool evening so the fire was lit in the beautiful fieldstone fireplace and the corner table was cozy and quiet. The food was excellent, everyone loved their meal and the service was terrific. I would highly recommend the Union Grill."

  • "Two different restaurants..one is a semi formal style, the other is a pub style...and you cannot order anything off the pub menu in the semi formal side...that was a little weird, so we moved to the pub side because their menu was actually more extensive. (Actually the pub menu has most of the semi formal menu items on it). But the con part of the pub is it can get very loud and messy. But good if you have energetic kids. Pub side service wasn't very good, but food was pretty good for pub fare."

  • "Our waitress was great, and the food was fresh and delicious. The chef was able to accommodate a slight modification to one of the dishes without any fuss. The dining room is small, but cozy. Not necessarily for small children, but the pub side (with a popcorn machine) lends itself to families with small children."

  • "Everything was perfect! The food was amazing and paced for our needs. Went for romantic walk on the beach after."

  • "nothing fancy or spectacular, but good salads & risotto and a decadent if slightly undercooked cookie/ice cream dessert. friendly server. a solid choice in York."
    Dined on 6/17/2013
  • "York beach is not know for upscale dinning....but this venue is an exception. The food, service, and ambiance is comparable to any high end neighborhood restuarant in Boston or New York. The chef knows how to cook sauces and soups that are rich , but not heavy. Service was outstanding......"

  • "Another fabulous meal was had by the three of us.The fish was moist and the prepared sauce was phenomenal. The filet mignon was tender and adequately portioned. The grilled salmon was equally moist and spiced accordingly. The sweetbreads are a secret delight; the fried goat cheese ravioli and salad were scrumptious."

  • "It was a very romantic evening , great ambiance and food was great.only cimplaint I had was the broccoli side dish that came with the filet, it was very bitter. Other than that perfect! The triple chocolate martinis were fabulous"

  • "We cannot say enough about the superb food we experienced with our friends. The veal sweetbreads were succulent; the fried oysters with plankton aioli was decadent; the filet mignon and duck breast both cooked to perfection; the gorgonzola mac-n-cheese was a creamy delight. We had a lovely Sterling Cab and the two drinks-the New Old Fashioned and Salted Caramel were delicious. Our server, Tracy, was ver accommodating and delightful. All gratitude and applause goes to the chef-Darren. We thank you for a fabulous night of gastronomic delight!"

  • "Usually I would be turned off by eating dinner in a hotel in a tourist location, but what a wonderful and pleasant surprise. The atmosphere in the dining room was warm, cosy with fireplace, and comfortable. The service was great, food very good and everyone very accomodating, especially for anyone with food allergies. we will go back any time we are in the area."

  • "If the pub weren't across the lobby without any separation causing its noise to permeate the dining room, the overall & ambiance ratings would be outstanding, and the noise rating probably quiet to moderate."

  • "We had dinner at the Union Grill. They were very friendly, the service was excellent and the food wonderful. The ambiance in the restaurant side was very nice and comfortable. It is small but there were only a few patrons so it was quiet and nice. As we were leaving we saw the outside patio for the grill and it looked like a nice place to hang out and have a few drinks and appetizers. The view from both the grill and pub are beautiful."

  • "Union Bluff Grille continues to excite. James Beard Chef Karl Mace is joined by Sous Chef Darren Kelly, who adds an Iberian flair to the creative menu. Darren did not disappoint. We had a foodies dream meal with scallop ceviche & Oysters Rockefeller that John D. would have approved. The Grilled Salmon was ideal with a crusty exterior & moist interior; no knife needed, it just flaked with the fork. It topped creamy, chunky garlic mashed potatoes & zesty roasted tomatoes. My wife had the Grilled Bacon Wrapped Sirloin, which she got medium rare. It was cooked to perfection and could be cut with a butter knife. Don't miss the three course Prix Fixe Dinner on Thursdays and Sundays that changes weekly for only 28.95 including wine!"
